One lesson I learned during cancer treatment was to be more flexible. One day I would wake up feeling okay and with a great appetite and, by the end of the day, I wanted to crawl under the nearest rock. I have to admit that it was tough learning to constantly adjust to changing conditions since, well, I am a Virgo with OCD tendencies. I’m glad that I learned to be more flexible. It’s something that is necessary in all aspects of life in order to get through the day with as little stress as possible, cancer or no cancer.
People tend to be so busy and caught up in the same routine that when circumstances change, we still plug along with what we are used to instead of taking the time to adjust to new conditions. For example, I know I’m not the only one with the tendency to use the same ingredients every day in my NutriBlasts. It actually took me several weeks before I realized that I should adjust my ingredients based upon my needs at the time. This is especially easy to do if you have the NutriBullet guide book that provides recipes for specific symptoms and health concerns.
So now, I have it down and switch my recipes according to how I feel. My spouse, who happens to be the target of every germ in Los Angeles, relies heavily on my super Vitamin C Blast when he starts to feel sick. This helps lesson the duration of his colds and helps prevent the cold from developing into something awful. This recipe usually involves some grapefruit, kiwi, broccoli and a little bit of spinach. It works every time!
After using my NutriBullet to help me detoxify from chemotherapy, I began making NutriBlasts to address fatigue, stress and hot flashes; I now make a mostly green NutriBlast using a variety of colorful vegetables and some blueberries along with maca powder (which is my “must have” ingredient), goji berries, chia seeds and almonds.
Speaking of detoxing, I do focus on some of the best detoxing fruits and veggies by combining broccoli sprouts, celery, beets, cilantro, a little bit of frozen papaya and a couple of sections from a tangerine. This usually is a pleasant way to detox.
The bottom line is that you should be trying out new recipes and learning to break the cycle of using the same ingredients. Not only is it fun to change things up, you will find that combining certain ingredients really does help you address and take control of whatever may be a concern at a time. You will love your new recipes and so will your body!
Whatever is on sale this week, that’s the name of my favourite recipe!
What I love is you don’t really need a recipe, you can just go to the store and buy whatever fruits and veggies are on sale and throw them in the NutriBullet. Have fun with it! The important part is all the good stuff that comes with drinking them.
After a horrible car accident in 2007, and then another one in 2010, I lost the ability to workout, garden, shovel the snow, etc. I look normal, but if I try to do any of these things, I pay for it with very painful migraines, sometimes lasting for weeks. I’ve always prided myself on being able to stay in shape, but since the second accident I’ve gained 30 pounds. Since I started making my NutriBullet Blasts, I’ve successfully lost a pound a week. I plan to be bikini-ready by October, just in time to celebrate my 50th birthday!
Thanks, NutriBullet, for helping me reach this goal!
NutriBullet user Lori T. had an incredibly difficult diagnosis to deal with. It compromised her health and kept her from eating right. She tried the NutriBullet and was finally able to ingest the nutrients from fruits and vegetables that she hadn’t been able to for so long.
A huge thank you to Lori for sharing her story and here’s wishing you a speedy recovery!
All of my friends and family know how great the NutriBullet experience has been for me, especially in terms of sleep. I immediately realized the benefits when I was springing up in the morning and going strong all day. I started off Blasting to replace breakfast and dinner and lost 7 lbs in the first week. Since then though, I’ve introduced dinners back in most days of the week, but I still have tons of energy and look forward to my daily ritual!
I started the blog because I was posting a picture and ingredients on my Facebook page everyday and I wanted a better way to track all of them (over 70 different recipes so far!) and reach a broader public. I just really want to help others get inspired to come up with their own greatness. I’ve converted 4 of my family and friends!

My whole life I’ve struggled with my health. I’ve tried all sorts of different diets and supplements and they’ve only kept me on a never-ending rollercoaster where I’d go up and down on the scale. I found it so hard to consistently eat healthy foods. In January of 2013, I hit my rock bottom. Luckily, around that time a series of events took place that would soon change my life forever. I went to the dentist, who told me I needed my wisdom teeth pulled. Before my surgery, I began to research the web for good blenders, knowing that I would need an alternative to solid food. I stumbled upon a couple of blogs about the NutriBullet. I then searched YouTube and saw the NutriBullet infomercial with Mr. David Wolfe. It seemed too good to be true, but every YouTube review for the product was positive.
I went out and purchased one. Once I made my first NutriBlast, I knew at that moment that this would be the start of a new lifestyle. Not a diet, just the ticket off the roller coaster. Being able to mix green, raw vegetables with my favorite fruits and adding boosts really turned my life around. I couldn’t believe how great it tasted. As if the taste wasn’t good enough, I started noticing changes immediately. My skin was glowing and my energy was through the roof. That energy and feeling gave me a mental and physical boost to work out harder and choose better food options. I tossed all the junk out of my fridge without an ounce of remorse. I even managed to hook my friends and family into it as well. I’m so happy with my NutriBullet.
Over the months, I’ve found so many other great uses for it. I make an amazing homemade vegetable soup, I grind up seeds and oats, I even make healthy frozen desserts. Sometimes, I just can’t wait to get home from work to try something new. I can say with confidence that my NutriBullet is here to stay and it will always be a part of my life!
